You'd prefer if gov'ts didn't work towards protecting their peoples?
How would gov'ts profit by spending loads on defensive equipments and procedures?
That's a fact, is it? I have no more fear of being assimilated into an American culture than I have of turning into Yosemite Sam.
Mostly it is the US and their defense department that profits and I am quite sure if one was to look deep enough we would find our government makes a little bit too the new id cards are not free and of course the price of air fare/security tax will go up.
The highest cost will be our privacy and freedom and @ the end of the day these precautions will not stop the terror yet it will supplement it.
My wife who grew up in Germany (Black Forest) she went to the east by train when she was young and crossed through the check points do we want Canada to have armed guards on trains/buses/plains harassing us for our papers.
If not we must stem this type of behavior that they say is in our best interest and for our own security that is exactly what the communists tell their people.
and there were a lot who agreed with their government too.
As I have said before it is a slippery slope we tread.
